For some, Britain’s impending divorce from the EU is an additional factor in their decision to return to their home country, according to the British daily.

The FT noted that Poland is experiencing record-low unemployment after a decade of strong growth.

The disadvantages of returning to Poland are the country’s “still formidable bureaucracy and the risk that... career paths may not ultimately reach the heights of those who remained in London,” the FT said.

The Polish economy grew 3.9% in the second quarter of this year, slightly down from 4% year-on-year expansion in the first three months.

The World Bank forecast in a report published earlier this month that Polish economic growth would accelerate to 4% this year as a whole from 2.7% in 2016.

Meanwhile, unemployment in Poland fell to a new low of 6.8% in September, the country’s Central Statistical Office (GUS) said last week.
